        This hotel was still under construction so for some that may be a problem but for us we had no problems with it. Rooms were basically brand new and the bathrooms were very nice. Staff was helpful and tried to answer any questions we had. Wifi barely worked, but that is pretty standard for the area when comparing to other places we stayed and people we spoke with.Once the construction is finished this will be an extremely nice place to stay for the price.

        The pension is situated just off the Main Street of bars and cafes in el nido. Perfectly close enough for a couple of minutes walk yet far enough away from it all. The owners couldn't have been more helpful, especially when I needed a trip to the local doctors. They can organise trips, taxis and all sorts. The rooms were simple, clean and fresh. Ideal place for to stop in el nido.

        The staff was excellent. The location was within a five min walk from the beach. The rooms were clean

        My stay was pleasant. The street we were on was one of the more quiet streets. You don't hear too much of the at night activities. You could actually sleep. The staff was helpful in getting our island hopping activities in place. The staff made sure that our stay there was as comfortable as possible. I would definitely stay at this pension again.

        The condition of the rooms left much to be desired.they are old with chipped paint, rust on all metal, and tired decor. There was a brownout while we were there and the generator fumes were overwhelming both in their courtyard(which doubled as a carport) and in our room.

        We only booked a short time at the hotel. We should have stayed longer since this was one of our favorite places at el nido, a little pricy but it was the best place there. the staff went out of their way to help us getting our luggage that was lost at the airport.

        Clean and spacious rooms but non-smiling staff”

        Value for money, bedroom size, hot shower

        We were a group of 4 friends and we stayed 5 nights in February 2015 at Giecel Pension. We weren't sure about the choice when we booked it as it had limited reviews, but overall, we thought it was a good, but not an incredible and memorable experience for us. In the end, the beauty of El Nido is in the islands and diving, not exactly our hotel. It is good value for money though for those who want to save some money for other activities in El Nido. Pros: -Nice spacious bedrooms, seemingly newly renovated -Value for money -Wifi (if you are close to the router) has acceptable speed for El Nido standards -Hot water Cons: -Hotel parrot, and nearby roosters were too loud early in the morning and prevented me from sleeping past 7am. -While El Nido is very small, we were a tad away from the rest of the town. Having said that, it was only a 10 minute walk to the main streets, restaurants, and beachfront, which was not bad. -While the staff at the reception helped us with our requests (changing the towels, cleaning the room - they don't clean if you don't ask them), they don't seem like to be the friendliest bunch. When I excitedly said good morning to them one day and asked "How are you?", the lady sort of just grunted a sound, and not really reply, all the while, not the slightest smile was detected. -The bathroom in our room, while spacious, had tiles missing in the wall, revealing some rusty pipes. There was basically little to no water coming out of the tap so we had to wash hands or even rinse our toothbrushes using the shower head. -The shower, while warm, had very little water pressure and it was hard to wash our hair, especially for those who have longer hair. Our friends in the next room (room 8) however had a rain shower installed, so it seems it was a problem of our room

        Perfect for El Nido family vacation on a budget”

        price, location, service

        We wanted a clean safe place to stay for 5 of us, Mom + 4 children ages ranging from 10-22. Since 3 of the kids are 12+ they were considered adults and most places required us to rent 2 rooms. We got a great deal on a family suite which was a simple room with 2 queen beds and one twin bed (a small desk) in a room with a bathroom. That's all we needed. We set our expectations on "camping/backpacking" with a safe place to lay our head after a full day of island hopping etc and it worked fine. The bathroom was in okay condition and we had some challenges with the bathroom door however the owner was quick to resolve the issue. We did a room only rate, but could order breakfast the night before, but we opted not to. They provided complimentary hot water upon request as we brought our own beverages. only a couple of blocks to the beach with restaurants, kayak rentals, tours, etc. Owner arranged island hopping when we arrived which was a 10 minute tricycle ride to beach. Owner mentioned they were getting ready to renovate the rooms, said other rooms had already been renovated. I asked to see one of the renovated rooms and they were QUITE nice and the bathrooms were MUCH nicer than ours. Glad I asked to see the room as it was so much different than ours. We got what we paid for and what we expected for the price. Would recommend family room set up for those on a budget, not needing to be right on the ocean and who are okay with the basics. Might want to ask if renovated.

        comodo ”

        Le camere sono molto belle e curate. ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo. anche la posizione è ottima leggermente fuori dal caos ma a un passo di lì e dal porto. vale certamente la pena soggiornare qui. attenzione agli overbooking perchè per la seconda notte a noi è capitata una riprotezione pessima in altra struttura di livello nettamente inferiore

        Det luktade mögel och instänkt i rummet”

        Rummet som vi fick luktade mögel och instänkt. Kontrollen till ac var sönder så man kunde endast ställa in den på svag svag blåst. Vi fick bara en nyckel till rummet för att den andra var borta vilket gjorde att vi inte kunde ha ac igång i rummet när vi inte var där. Personalen var otrevlig och ohjälpsam.
